    Comments about First Ascent|Men|Hats, Gloves & Socks Men's Guide Trigger Mitts:

    These mitts are very warm. My hands can sweat in these. The materials are great and the quality is the usual Eddie Bauer that I've come to expect: excellent.

    However, I cannot recommend these if you need dexterity. Problem with these gloves is that the end where your hand first goes in are too large and thus difficult to get the glove in the jacket, unless you put the gloves on first and then put your jacket on after... then comes the tricky part: zipping your jacket. I get frustrated with these because I have to often take them off my hands to do basic things, then when putting the gloves back on, they look very messy because the "cuffs" aren't in the jacket. And in -20 degree weather, I'm not taking my jacket off to put the gloves back on properly.

    I'd only recommend these gloves if your going out with them and your confident you won't need to take them off.

    Fingers to long.

    Comments about First Ascent|Men|Hats, Gloves & Socks Men's Guide Trigger Mitts:

    I do not have short fingers. Rather longer than average. These mitts have to long fingers, devastating dexterity. Must return.

    Warm and still somewhat functional, What I've been looking 4

    Comments about First Ascent|Men|Hats, Gloves & Socks Men's Guide Trigger Mitts:

    I got these for extreme cold weather (zero and below) winter photography and bought the XL so I could put a liner under them. Otherwise a Large fit fine to my bare hand which is my normal clove size. So far I have worn them at zero and they were just what I was hoping for. Somewhat hard for dexterity but they are think and warm. Thats a trade off with every glove it have looked at. I also have a older pair of cold weather mittens then I have used in the past. These seem to have more dexterity. On sale, they are a very good value.

    Best Uses

      Comments about First Ascent|Men|Hats, Gloves & Socks Men's Guide Trigger Mitts:

      I've been using these for resort skiing for almost a season now. These do a good job of keeping my hands as warm as mittens with minimal bulk. I've used similar products from Hestra and Black Diamond and these are much lighter while keeping my hands almost as warm. The biggest issue with these is that the leather palms wet out easily, so be sure to treat them with Nikwax (which was thoughtfully included with these) or something similar. Minor annoyances are that the mitts are not as articulated as the other brands I've used and that the gauntlets are shorter and more difficult to tighten and loosen making them difficult to secure over jacket cuffs. Also, the lack of dummy straps on mittens always irks me as they usually need to be removed often to do anything requiring your fingers. Speaking from experience, losing a mitt on the chairlift up the mountain will ruin your day pretty quickly.
